Health Management at Pali Momi
Pali Momi’s Diabetes Self-Management Program is designed to help patients manage their condition and keep them as healthy and active as possible.
The program allows patients to meet in a class setting with a nurse educator to develop a self-care program. The 10-hour program includes an individual diabetes assessment followed by a series of four classes that cover the following topics:
- Diabetes overview
- Goal setting
- Nutrition and exercise
- Self blood glucose monitoring
- Long-term complications
- Psycho-social concerns
A physician may refer a patient by calling 1-808-535-7733. Patients should remember to bring a list of all their medications, any papers their doctor has given them and their blood sugar testing equipment. If a patient needs to reschedule their appointment, they should call at least 24-hours before their scheduled visit.
